secondskin 's Thoughts:

Right now as a side job, I am in the middle of a collaboration with an advanced screen printing class at the local High School where I am basically facilitating field trips to thrift stores and guiding them through the somewhat daunting task of finding good source materials for alternative print media. In other words, I am helping them to see that second hand clothing is unique, often times one of a kind, full of character and ready to be printed on. They seem to be really in to it. Its actually really exciting to see them get excited over discarded patterned shirts in the .25c bin or a gigantic mens button down that can be converted into a shirt dress with a belt and some choice cuts and tailoring. On our expedition, I picked up this subtle animal print skirt that is long enough to be a dress. Wore it today feeling inspired and thrifty.

Thanks! I have a few skirts that I like to wear as dresses! It really opens up a wardrobe! Much easier in winter with leggings than in summer bare legged though!

Your outfit is adorable! I love the hat. Your side job sounds like fun! I've never been much of a thrift store girl, but I'm trying to ease my way into it. :)

My side "Job" is strictly voluntary! I became aquatinted with the art teachers at the school, and in exchange for some free workshops, I get to use their screen printing and ceramics studios!
